« Mini nuclear power plants, by the thousands? | Main | Iraq Liberation Act: 10th anniversary celebration - 9 »

October 08, 2008


We cannot allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon. It would be a game-changer in the region. Not only would it threaten Israel, our strongest ally in the region and one of our strongest allies in the world, but it would also create a possibility of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of terrorists. And so it’s unacceptable. And I will do everything that’s required to prevent it. And we will never take military options off the table. And it is important that we don’t provide veto power to the United Nations or anyone else in acting in our interests. -- Barack Obama 7-Oct-2008
This quote destroys the myth that President Bush is a warmonger (any more than Barack Obama is).

Yeah, it means something, it means he's willing to say whatever he figures he has to say to get elected.

When you feel the "others" are in power, the temptation is to stop thinking of solutions, but to harp on the problems and to second-guess and see evil motives in every solution the "others" try. That's the luxury of no responsibility.

But when you assume power, and there's no question you have the responsibility, you find you can no longer close your eyes and wish problems away. You also find that the "others" you've been complaining about were offering some fairly reasonable solutions all along.

I was so wrong about McCain's ability to debate. I thought all those years in the Senate would have taught him something. I have to conclude he's just not that smart. He certainly isn't an effective debater, in my opinion. He just misses so many points.

Did anyone else gulp when Obama asserted that health care is a "right"? McCain said it was a "responsibility". Is there a clearer separator between the opposing views of the role of government? I don't think McCain even blinked.
